Program Highlights

The Center for Clinical Data Science (CCDS)

The Center for Clinical Data Science (CCDS) is composed of a team of world-class machine learning scientists, software engineers, data engineers, infrastructure engineers, and medical doctors, that bring the best of the tech industry to healthcare. It combines a wealth of healthcare data with world-class computational resources and technical know-how to deliver unique solutions in close collaboration with our physician thought-leaders.

Since 2018, our residents have participated in a unique 4th year Clinical Data Science pathway at the CCDS. Through this pathway, under esteemed mentorship, our residents receive training in machine learning and artificial intelligence and engage in collaborative data science projects. Many of our recent graduates have gone on to continue this work and hold leadership positions at the intersection of  clinical radiology and artificial intelligence.

BWH STRATUS Center for Medical Simulation

The Neil and Elise Wallace STRATUS Center for Medical Simulation is dedicated to advancing healthcare education, enhancing patient safety and improving clinical outcomes. The Brigham Radiology residency utilizes the STRATUS Center for various training sessions throughout the academic year, including:

  • Breast biopsy simulation
  • Cross-sectional interventional radiology US-guided procedures simulation
  • Angio interventional radiology US-guided vascular access and suturing
  • Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) and contrast-reaction simulation
  • New England Roentgen Ray Society (NERRS) musculoskeletal ultrasound simulation session
  • Optional R4 two- or four-week electives in simulation education at the STRATUS center

Dana Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI)

Our close affiliation with the Dana Farber Cancer Institute and dedicated Cancer Imaging rotations provide residents with exposure to a breadth of common and uncommon malignancies and their treatments. There are abundant opportunities for learning and research at the intersection of the vast resources at DFCI and our residency. 


Our program recognizes the importance of mentoring for residents. One of our Associate Program Directors, Dr. Jennifer Uyeda, serves as a dedicated faculty mentor for all of our first year residents, and each R2-R4 resident is assigned a dedicated faculty mentor. Some R1 specific events with the first year faculty mentor include:

  • Class/group mentoring breakfast or lunch sessions
  • Individual 1:1 mentor sessions 3x during the year
  • Beginning of the year welcome event
  • First year bonding/”get to know each other” activity

Advanced Multimodality Image Guided Operating (AMIGO)

The Advanced Multimodality Image Guided Operating (AMIGO) suite, encompassing 5,700 square feet, is divided into three separate yet integrated procedure rooms. The suite is designed so that multidisciplinary medical teams can move effortlessly throughout to access any of the advanced imaging and surgical technologies available, whether before, during, or after the procedure. AMIGO is one of the first operating suites in the world to integrate the use of this wide variety of advanced imaging technologies, including cross-sectional digital imaging systems such as CT and MRI; real-time anatomical imaging, such as x-ray and ultrasound; and molecular imaging, such as beta probes (detects malignant tissue by measuring sensitivity to beta radiation), PET/CT, and targeted optical imaging (imaging based on the nature of light).
